'ello! I'm a 2D animator + illustrator from the UK who has done gigs for the BBC, SEGA, Essex County Council and the Adventure Island theme park, to name a few!

The last few bits of art I've made were done with no sketch whatsoever, just made up as I went along. Mainly because I am squeezing them in between projects so they have to be quick but it's a nice feeling to just dig straight in and still end up with a final illustration despite zero prep work.

CMYK-ViVi

Inspired by a 'draw your in the palette' fad going around. This was way too much fun to do.

The icon I made for my old character The Howdooyoodoo somehow became a full illustration for the fun of it.

The scariest video game jump scare. For reals. 

Poppy Playtime? Five Nights at Freddy's? Slenderman? Pffft.

Grannie's Garden tho.

One feature I would love to implement if it's possible is a link called 'On this day' that finds any posts with todays date and shows any from previous years on that same day. So 16th May would show posts from that day in 2010 and 2007 or something, for example.

There must be some CSS or JavaScript out there that could do that, I'm just having a hard time finding it. Giant bomb has a feature like this on their home page for their videos.

Right I think I'm done tinkering with this for now. Thank god Tumblr has a revert theme html option as I almost lost all my hard work!

I have also added a site history page that briefly chronicles my entire time on the internet, from Manga-Gaga to today! animatedaf.co.uk/history

Last night I tried out a new design for my website. Now there is a menu bar on the side rather than the buttons under the logo at all times and the posts show the text and media underneath them. Still needs a bit of tinkering but let me know what you think! Using a Tumblr theme called 'Indy'.

I tried to convert a swf to a gif on cloudconvert and ended up with this. I found a better solution in the end but this is a fun happy accident!

Video contains LOTS of swearing, violence

The HD footage is sourced from the amazing blu-ray release from last year which you can buy here: amazon.co.uk/Cyber-City-Oedo-8

This was edited together quickly last night for the fun of it, the thumbnail art is from an old Manga-gaga comic!

Tomorrow I'm uploading a dumb remaster of one of my oldest youtube videos.

It happened!! Thanks to @tantedante for being my 900th YouTube subscriber!
